The Oil Refinery Operations Online Training Program will prepare you for an entry-level career as an oil refinery operator. This skill is very much in demand, locally and internationally. Oil facilities are operated by oil refinery operators. Oil refinery operators are highly paid and enjoy a stable work environment, and there’s an ongoing need for entry-level personnel. This online certificate program is offered in partnership with major colleges, universities, and other accredited education providers.
Upon successful completion of this program, you’ll be able to:
Generally, oil refinery operators enter the workforce in entry-level positions and work their way up, sometimes to senior management positions. Currently a large portion of the workforce is retiring, creating a critical shortage of technical workers for many years to come.
Very few institutions provide training for entry-level operators. This is a unique, user-friendly program designed for people who have minimal knowledge of the industry, math, physics, or chemistry. The necessary science concepts are built into the program modules.
Oil refinery operators have the responsibility to make sure unit and process systems function properly. They consider personnel safety as the primary objective and ensure production processes are operating safely. They continually monitor instrumentation and the operation of equipment and make adjustments to keep system process variables within acceptable ranges. Oil refinery operators also detect potential and actual problems and take corrective action to prevent the interruption of system operations.
Depending upon industry and location, entry-level oil refinery operators can make $13.00 to $20.00 per hour. After a few years of experience, generally the pay range is $18.00 to $35.00 per hour. Benefits are usually above-average for workers. Oil refinery operators are rarely laid off, and nearly all regions of the United States have oil or hydrocarbon manufacturing facilities.
Upon registering, you’re given an initial twelve months to complete this program. Should you need more time beyond the twelve months, an extension of twelve months is available at no additional cost.
